At Pardoes Solicitors we understand the highs and lows of having a career with the Armed Forces. The strain on relationships while military personnel are deployed overseas, the interruption of careers of partners with postings to different parts of the country or abroad, the physical and mental strains that accompany serving one's country. We appreciate that being in the Armed Forces is much more than a job.

We can help you with all your legal needs: Family issues (divorce, civil partnership and cohabitation disputes, child arrangements, matrimonial finances, out of court settlements, pre and post nuptial agreements, separation and cohabitation agreements);  Protecting loved ones (wills, lasting powers of attorney, trust, probate, estate administration); property (residential & commercial property, landlord & tenant, business ownership, agriculture & farming); Disputes (wills, contentious probate, property, business, partnerships, debt).

We offer a 10% discount to all serving personnel. We can provide advice by e-mail, telephone, in person or by video link so we can cater for those overseas.

We initially signed the Armed Forces Covenant in February 2019 and have re-signed it on 8 November 2023 in order to renew our promise. 

We have always had close links to Yeovilton and we are proud to support our staff, many of whom have family in the Armed Forces, in particular, to recognise the value of serving personnel, reservists and veterans.

Our Reservist Policy.

Family Law

We know that serving personnel returning home can face even greater challenges fitting back into family life. Sadly divorce features highly for the military and coping with the legal process at the same time as trying to keep to keep up with the demands of duty can be overwhelming.

Here at Pardoes we can offer a tailor made service to meet your needs and help you steer through the complexities of dividing up marital assets and explaining the issues surrounding military pensions. We understand the differences between the different schemes, the AFPS 75, the AFPS 05, the RFPS and the AFPS 15 and can help you work out what would represent a fair settlement.

We also understand the affects of divorce on children and can help you ensure you keep your relationship with the children even when you are moving around the world.
